Moments of More than One Random Variable Lecture IX I. Covariance and Correlation A. Definition 4.3.1: , Cov X Y E X E X Y E Y E XY XE Y E X Y E X E Y E XY E X E Y E X E Y E X E Y E XY E X E Y 1. Note that this is simply a generalization of the standard variance formulation. Specifically, letting YX yields: 2 2 Cov XX E XX E X E X E X E X 2. From a sample perspective, we have: 2 1 1 1 1 , n t t n tt t V X x n Cov X Y x y n 3. Together the variance and covariance matrices are typically written as a variance matrix: , , xx xy yx yy V X Cov X Y Cov X Y V Y Note that ,, xy yx Cov X Y Cov Y X . 4. Substituting the sample measures into the variance matrix yields

In terms of the theoretical distribution, the variance matrix can be written as: 2 2 ,, x f x y dxdy xy f x y dxdy xy f x y dxdy y f x y dxdy 6.
